Performance notes: U2 perform on the first day of an ill-fated three day event called the Free Peace Festival featuring a large bill of mostly local bands. Although thousands are expected to attend, only a few hundred show up on the first day, increasing to around 3,000 on the third; the weather is poor; fights broke out amongst the crowd; there is dissension amongst the road crew; and the organiser is arrested for assault.

what they said
"Boy is a sexual record of sorts, October is a spiritual record. War, I don't know what. It was as if U2 were learning how to be U2. Now we want to find out what U2 can do."
- Bono, 1984
did you know
Part of the inspiration for the lyrics of One reportedly grew out of a note Bono had sent to the Dalai Lama declining an invitation to a festival called Oneness. The note included, in part, the line, “one – but not the same,” a line which would later appear in the song’s lyrics. That idea of “oneness,” Bono would later say, was a key concept for the song.
